Preity goes preppy

Didn't Preity Zinta's straight-haired-bespectacled look in "Kal Ho Naa Ho" remind you of preppy Ali Macgraw in the 1969 Hollywood film "Love Story"?

Grins Preity: "From peppy I've gone to preppy. Let's hope I never become petty!"

Preity seems to be acquiring fame in good measure. Barely had she finished shooting with "the amazing" Yash Johar for the breathlessly awaited "Kal Ho Naa Ho" when she plunged into Yash Chopra's intriguing love story. It finally went on the floors. And Preity hasn't stopped grinning since then.

"Yash uncle is a rock star. Believe me, this is something I've never done before. I was so nervous on the first day. But Yash uncle said, 'Take it easy'. He made it so easy for me."

Preity had to cut down her annual December holiday from 40 to 10 days. "But for the two amazing Yashs in my life...anything," she sighs.
